Organizers are gearing up for one of the most magical events of the Christmas season in Campbell River.

The 5th annual Big Truck Parade is scheduled to go ahead as planned on Friday, Nov. 29.

“The parade is magical,” says Jan Tess of the Downtown BIA. “There is nothing like watching these rolling works of art covered in lights.”

Santa and Mrs. Claus have been notified once again and they are bringing along a special Elf friend. The first parade featured 11 trucks, last year there were 37.

“Thirty trucks have signed up so far (for this year’s event) and it is only Oct. 23,” Tees said. “We would like to have as many trucks as possible so if anyone wants to take part in this great event call Jan Tees at 250-287-8642 or email jantees@hotmail.com.”
